10 Moments in 2020 by Pat Simmons

 Hi all,

As I celebrate Christ this time of year and year round, I want to reflect on the blessings in my life. I'm sure many of you can relate.

  1. I've never gone hungry
  2. I've never missed a bill
  3. I haven't lost a close friend/family member to COVID-19, although of know of others who have
  4. I haven't missed a church service--virtual after March
  5. God has watched over my adult children from sickness and harm
  6. God has spared my brother-in-law who is Deaf and mentally challenged from COVID-19, after being hospitalized twice for pneumonia
  7. God has blessed my writing ministry beyond measure with my new release, Christmas Dinner, featured in a national magazine, Woman's World. 
  8. Despite the evil and madness in the world, I haven't lost my faith in God
  9. Unexpected cards and gifts from friends
  10. COVID-19 might have kept me away physically from others, but relationships have been strengthened through Zoom

These are just some of the reasons why I'm grateful as 2020 comes to a close. Can you list 5 things that is making you thankful?
Until next year, may neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you and heaven accept
